Available from 31 July and marking one year since the latest The Lion King film was released in cinemas, the visual album, entitled Black Is King, is directed, produced and written by the 24-time Grammy Award-winner. According to Disney, the new album "reimagines the lessons of "The Lion King" for today's young kings and queens in search of their own crowns".
